Movies Represent Coma In A Wrong Way

Morse code with his finger. Thirty-one percent of those surveyed thought that this behavior was possible.

The researchers also sought to determine how much impact these movies may have on the public’s decision-making. Survey participants were asked how strongly they agreed with this statement: ‘If my family member would be in the same situation, it is possible that I would remember what happened in the scene and allow it to influence any decisions that I would make.’

More than a third of the viewers, 39 percent, said that they would allow the scenes to influence their decisions.

‘We understand that making motion pictures is an art form and that entertainment is a very important component of that art form,’ Wijdicks said. ‘But this mispresentation in both U.S. and foreign moves is problematic. We have some concerns with using coma and awakening in comedies. A neurologist’s review of the script or an actor visiting a NeuroIntensive Care Unit may be helpful to screenwriters. The public has become more sophisticated in their medical knowledge and we presume they would appreciate a more accurate display of devastating neurologic injury.’
